We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable features are the Integrations, web site, and search.The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.This solution has helped us with the categorization, organization, management, discovery, and delivery of program and project related information.For any organization with more than one person in it, if they are trying to organize things to let people in the company know what others are doing, then this solution is good for them.The workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities.It has helped us with storing all the documents, which means that people are not going to intervene. There is a way of extracting knowledge within documentation and tracking it. There are knowledge assets for where documentation is stored, indexed and searchable through SharePoint.The metadata services, the WCF service integration and the Voxel feature are three most valuable elements of this solution.Tech support tops off as excellent.

We use WordPress on two different websites and it solves all of our website issues.It is a stable system which offers a wide variety of themes and templates.As WordPress is such a popular product, there are many designers and developers available to work on projects.Ready-made themes speed the design process; a huge number of quality themes are available from several sources.Good for rapidly turning around all the elements required for online sales funnels.It has a vast array of themes which could be applied to make the website visually look more appealing to the target market.This program has made it possible for our company to advertise all around the country, instead of keeping it local.

Cons
The areas of this solution that need improvement are the relationships between lists, cross-site web parts, and page-building tools.The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.This solution would benefit from the implementation of enhanced online forms and template development capabilities.I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools.Workflow is something that can become more intelligent.Search can be improved a lot because we are always trying to compare it with Google Search. Beyond that, it would be helpful to tag the documents.The initial setup was very complex.I understand that some functions are lost when you store the information in a file system, so maybe that's a way SharePoint can improve.

I would recommend dumping the Gutenberg interface, as that is horrible.The system should be more informative.The basic product is becoming less usable by end users for site maintenance post delivery.Backups and moving sites could be handled better.WordPress sites do require quite a bit of maintenance: Constant updates to both WordPress and all the various plugins that it requires.It may be useful to have a downloadable program that you could have on your desktop that allows you to create and maintain the program while offline.

Pricing and Cost Advice
For this type of solution, it is not wise to buy it without Software Assurance.The pricing works for us.The cost is expensive, but worthwhile.We have purchased add-ons to handle multiple site collections, form creation, and design.The data classification and search elements are cheap.The replacement costs for it are cheaper if you use only SharePoint.It is very expensive.‚Äč

Set up cost is nothing. Pricing is free. You need to pay a cost only for the domains, hosting, and to buy themes.It provides a high ROI.
